By chance, is this information being posted on a site for viewing all specs of the individual cards and the projects that were used (or description of test)? This is an awesome resource. Thanks!

did a little test with lloyd the other day that had some extuded text with a reflective floor. 2008 macpro CPU render was abotu 15mins. he turned on his 8800GT that is not supported and it rendered in about 7 mins. on a q4000 the same scene took 37 seconds

CPU based render?

Danny, could you do a test for me on the same project file with the 580 turned off? Just to see how much the Nvidia cards are helping the situation?

Fantastic!

Thank you ever so much for doing this. This is truly phenomenal of the user group to come together to make this all possible.

Cheers.

The 480 uses more power than the 5XX
im expecting the 570 to be about the same speed as the 480 while using less power

waiting for some tests on that one

we had the 580 at 15:07
so 480 was about 8% slower

For the performance to cost ratio....WOW! That's phenomenal!

Now, the 580 is cutting that time by 3 minutes is that correct?

Cheers.

480 in a 12 core macpro was 16:21

What about the 480? Did that not score between the 580 and 680?

I'd be very interested to see that.

Cheers.

interesting
thats why we need more results...

the 680 tested in a z800 rendered in 17:34
a 580 in an 2008 mac pro was 15:07

GTX 680 - 2 GB VRAM - clock speed 1096 MHZ

core i7 3930K (6 logical cores) overclocked to 4.7 gHZ

render time : 13 min 5 seconds = 780 seconds


GTX 580 - 3 GB VRAM - clock speed 866 MHZ

core i7 940 (4 cores) oc'd to 3.7 gHZ

render time 13 min 50 seconds = 830 seconds


So these results seem to imply there is a disk and / or CPU bottleneck in your benchmark project, or there is something else going on. Maybe RAM plays a factor. Because in my own benchmark tests with a different project, I get different results, where the GTX 580 is faster, not the 680 in the faster machine. Interesting...

I'm running a flashed 470 from eBay. I'll run the test and send you the results.
